We trust in God the Holy Spirit who feeds us with the bread of life and the cup of salvation...

These words from "A Brief Statement of Faith" reiterate the importance of the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper for Presbyterians. They affirm that the initial action of this divine meal begins with God. God in Jesus the Christ offers the bread and the cup and bids us come.

Everyone who believes is welcome at the Lord's Supper, which is held on the first Sunday of the month. There are exceptions when yearly festivals are celebrated and during the Easter Season. See the church calendar for scheduled services. We celebrate by intinction which means our members come forward to recieve the bread and then dip it in the cup before eating.

We who come need not be concerned about our personal appearance or aptitude. What matters is that the love, the grace, and the hospitality of the host create the unanimity among us. This meal is provided, not because we have earned the right to eat and drink with Jesus, but simply as an act of divine love. The service of thanksgiving and praise includes thanks for God's creation, for deliverance from sin, for the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, and for the privilege of participating in the promised fullness of the kingdom.
